This lavishly illustrated guide showcases the wide array of fantastic dragons encountered on the world of Krynn.

With tips and tricks every new adventurer can use on imaginary encounters with dragons, this book will enchant readers with both pictures and words.

About the Author
Sindri Suncatcher
is a three-and-a-half foot tall kender, who enjoys storytelling, collecting magical tokens, and fighting dragons. He lives in Solamnia and is currently studying magic under the auspices of the black-robed wizard Maddoc. You can catch Sindri in the midst of his latest adventure in The Wayward Wizard.

Review:

Did you know dragons hate sweet flavors? Or that the Draconic word for ugly is "nurh"? Or that the best place to find a green dragon is behind a waterfall? Any dragon buff worth his or her salt needs to know the ins and outs of these frightful, spectacular creatures. And Sindri Suncatcher, the wizard apprentice narrator of A Practical Guide to Dragons is just the man for the job. Although he forbids potential readers from opening the book, the insatiably curious will ignore the warning and begin reading Sindri's "scrolls" to learn what the sometimes foolishly fearless kender (small, mischievous hobbit-like man) has learned about dragons.

This gorgeously illustrated book by Lisa Trumbauer will provide hours of absorbed entertainment for humans in search of the nittiest grittiest details about dragons, from anatomy and physiology to combat techniques to society to language to the many types of dragons. Packed with details, it also is infused with sly humor throughout, with many allusions to Sindri's adventures with dragons, as well as to his colorful family (the book is dedicated to Aunt Moonbeam). --Emilie Coulter
